Okay, just wondering if this has been done and if theres any pics of it... I'm getting frustrated with the stock headlights of my Gen3... they just look to unbalanced, even modding them doesnt look quite right... soo... i want to do something more agressive...

I was wondering if anyone has any information on a possible s15 front end conversion and the costs associated with it... im willin to spend to get this done... any help would be much appreciated

did you take a look at the DIY smokingtire wrote up? There was a guy on here that fiberglassed an extention of the hood where it covers part of the headlight making it looks somewhat like a s13.

Wow Scott, do some research :rolleyes:

$700 for a set of JDM headlamps. And I did a full write up on how to align the stock USDM head lamps and corner lamps.


The S15 conversion would be a massive waste of money unless you have something to back it. Like the kid who did a full Skyline conversion on a Gen 3 with an Inline-4 :barf:

And switching to a 4cyl? Where has this world gone :disappoin

Maybe people don't realize how much money Justin (Wraith) has had to spend in order to get hit up to the point it is. It's not easy and not cheap.

I'd say stick with the 1mz man. It would be a huge waste of money to take on so many projects at once. And none of them would get completed if you are spreading the funds out.

I think it would look like crap. Small headlights on a big car :rolleyes:
Trying to put headlights from a Nissan into a Toyota won't make you any less frustrated.
Make some Gen3.5 projectors... those would be pimp.
